Dichlorido{2-[(2,6-dimethyl­phen­yl)imino­meth­yl]pyridine-κ2 N,N′}zinc

By Xue-hong Liu, Li-min Zhao and Feng-shou Liu


In the asymmetric unit of the title compound, [ZnCl2(C14H14N2)], the central ZnII ion is four-coordinated in a distorted tetra­hedral environment by two N atoms of the ligand 2-[(2,6-dimethyl­phen­yl)imino­meth­yl]pyridine and two chloride anions. In the crystal, adjacent mol­ecules are connected through C—H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds between a C—H group of the ligand and a Cl− anion, leading to a chain-like structure along the b direction
